I came by your blog by way of black and white cookie recipe which are my #1 thing along with Pizza. Your bio sounds like my bio (see my blog). Have to love our GM's and Mom and in my case my Aunts. I love to bake:) I have signed on to follow your blog since you seem to love playing with flour as much as I do:)
